Free DEXA Scan!

I had a DEXA scan done this past Saturday at the UCSD Bone School. Dual-Energy X-ray Absoptiometry is the gold standard to measure body composition (including body fat) and bone mineral density. You can learn more about DEXA here: EPARC, UC San Diego - Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry

I'm looking forward to seeing my results and recommend you to get a scan if you're interested in finding out more about your bone health and body composition. Four different scans were performed: body composition, hip, lumbar, and forearm. The appointment is free through the DEXA school, as long as you have a letter of consent from your primary care physician. I was able to email the form to my doctor and pick it up from her receptionist. The appointments are only on the weekends and may take up to 90 minutes. You would receive your results 1-2 weeks after the scan. Call 858-822-7624 or email to schedule the free DEXA through the school. Please make sure to be there for this appointments as the school relies on your participation to assure graduation to the attending students!
